One of the most common ailments people experience is neck pain. Whether it's stress-related, sports-related, or an injury sustained from repetitive motion, the fact is you want it gone. That's where White Plains Chiropractic & Wellness in White Plains, NY can help. Our chiropractor has the means to put you at ease and relieve discomfort and stiffness in the neck and the joints surrounding the neck area.
Stress-Related Neck Pain
If you work long hours sitting behind a computer in an uncomfortable chair, this can put stress on your back and neck. Poor workplace ergonomics place particularly intense strain on the joints surrounding the neck and back. This is where investing in an ergonomically designed chair seems like the logical answer to solve your problem. But what happens if you're still hurting? This is when visiting a professional chiropractor can help.
Maybe you overdid it on the basketball court and strained your neck and back. Well, you're not alone. According to the Insurance Information website, in the article, "Facts + Statistics: Sports Injuries," in 2019, basketball injuries accounted for 404,000 of the total sports-related injuries in the United States. It was ranked third amongst all sports-related injuries.
So, what happens after you sustain a sports-related injury? While over-the-counter medication can mask your pain, it does nothing to address what is causing your discomfort in the first place. This is when you need to make an appointment with our chiropractor at White Plains Chiropractic and Wellness. Our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of your pain and immobility before creating a chiropractic care plan to treat it.
Repetitive Motion Injury
Repetitive Strain Injury is caused when you use the same muscles over and over again, which then results in strain in the muscles, tendon, and nerves. This leads to pain, stiffness, and tightness throughout the affected areas. A repetitive motion injury can affect the neck and shoulders, forearms, and elbows as well as the wrists and hands. Regular chiropractic adjustments will relieve your pain, restore your range of motion, and improve your body’s natural ability to recover after injury. Chiropractic adjustments performed will depend on the type, location, and severity of your injury.
